I asked the same question a couple of weeks back. Apparently it's because 
Adobe changed the package.

So now that I've been reminded about it, I'll ask a new question - does it 
just need somebody to update the md5sum? If so, how long does it take? And 
what does it take? Somebody to download the latest flash plugin and generate 
a new md5sum? I could probably manage that myself, only I wouldn't know how 
to install the update for everybody else to benefit.
